Outlaws Focused on Tuttle

MARLOW — Marlow football is happy to be home after playing four of its first six games on the road.

Tuttle wants to sour that happiness. The Tigers (5-1, 2-0) rolls into Marlow on Thursday riding a five game win streak. The Outlaws (4-2, 2-1) have been on the other side of the emotional spectrum, losing two of their last three.

In last week’s 43-14 loss at Blanchard, the Outlaws had problems playing at the high level the reigning state champs were producing on. This has caused a call from coach Rob Renshaw to revert to the basics of football.

“We’re just trying get better at the fundamentals of the game,” Renshaw said. “We’ve got to learn how to compete at a high level with very good competition.”

The second quarter against Blanchard (6-0, 3-0) proved to be the turning point of the game and showed just how much missed tackles can hurt a team. Consistency throughout the game is the problem for Renshaw.

“We can’t have lulls in intesity or effort,” Renshaw said. “To beat good people, you have got to play solid for four quarters. You can’t just do it for one, two or three quarters. You have to do it the whole game.”

One of the bright spots has been the play of sophomore Braeden O’Dell, who proved to be one of Marlow’s best weapons in the second half against Blanchard. O’Dell has improved each week, according to Renshaw, and has take on a leadership role.

“He’s been doing a good job for us,” Renshaw said. “His poise during the game (has been impressive). It’s not too much for him and he’s handled it very well.”

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.

Either time is fine.
